Gelli paper for a frame...

6 x 8" picture frame

So on the Gelli Arts Facebook page (with over 3,000 members by the way) I found reference to someone doing a frame for a bulletin board in a similar way to this.  

These are Gelli printed deli paper strips put on with mat medium.  Then when totally dry I coated it with gloss varnish.  

Would be darling for a mirror I think.  Using the frame with a painting would be trickier, but you could use deli paper in colors that complimented the painting?
Doing the mitered corners was a little tricky but you get the hang of it after doing one.  Just a reminder of some of the "craftier" sides of Gelli paper.
